How does No Credit Risk Invoice Factoring work for Plastics and Chemical Suppliers?

Factoring sometimes referred to as Invoice discounting, is a commonly used financing tool for small businesses. When your Plastics or Chemical company sells its goods or services, it generally provides payment terms to its customers, rather than require cash at the time of sale.

There are numerous sound reasons for this business practice, including increasing sales and developing long-term relationships. When such a transaction takes place, the business is left with an account receivable which it holds on its books until the customer pays it turns into cash.

What Types of Funding is Available to the Chemical & Plastics Industry?

Non-Recourse Invoice Factoring

With No Credit Risk Non-Recourse Factoring, the factoring company gives the chemical or plastics supplier, manufacturer, distributor, or any company on the supply chain, a credit guarantee that they are responsible for the collection of your invoices. It might be all your invoices or just those from certain clients.

Typically this guarantee is in case your client files for bankruptcy. This is a crucial point to understand that it is not a guarantee that you are protected for goods or services that your client disputes for not meeting specifications. You are also not protected if your clients pay slower than normal.

However, this “insurance policy” against bankruptcy is critical for your survival. Toys R Us, Vitamin World, Gymboree, Payless ShoeSource, Gander Mountain could be your ‘risk-free’ client, yet they are all examples of companies that filed bankruptcy that were once thriving companies.

Purchase Order Financing

Factoring is both a cost-effective and relatively easy process. Your creditworthy client, (ie, Dow, BASF, ExxonMobil, Formosa Plastics) receives the product, the factoring company verifies a few essential facts including your customer’s happiness with the quality, quantity, and timeliness of your product (documentation requirements are also validated). You are advanced up to 90% of the invoice amount now and in the future receive the balance less the factoring fee when your client pays the factoring company.

What if you don’t have the money to buy the goods? This is where Purchase Order Financing or a Vendor Guarantee applies. PO Funding is where you need the factoring company to buy the goods for you (Cash Against Documents (CAD) or a via a Letter of Credit) or you need to use the factor’s creditworthiness for your vendor to release the goods and be paid from the Factoring proceeds (a Vendor Guarantee).

Remember, you can have Invoice Factoring without PO Funding, but you cannot have Purchase Order Financing without Invoice Factoring.

    What is the Factoring process for Plastic and Chemical companies?

    The factoring process is very straightforward. Acting under a simple agreement, a business sells its accounts receivable to a finance company (a “Factor”) in return for an immediate cash advance-usually 80-90% of the invoice amount. Invoice discounting is usually conducted under what is called “full notification,” meaning the account debtor is made aware that the invoice has been sold, and is directed to make payment directly to the finance company.

    The Factor then follows for payment of the receivable, deducts its fees from the proceeds, and remits the balance to the business. Invoice discounting is the selling of accounts receivable to a third party to improve cash flow.

    What does it take for Chemical and Plastic Suppliers to Qualify for Funding?

    Who can afford to wait 45, 60, or 90 days to receive the payment from your large commercial or government customers? Factoring companies look at your customer’s ability to pay, not your personal credit. Receivables factoring provides you the working capital your company needs.
